American Tyranny: Our Tax Apocalypse
"Brushaber and the Congressional Record excerpt do indeed state that for constitutional purposes, the income tax is an excise tax."
"[I]t is clearly established that since the adoption of the Sixteenth amendment, an income tax is never a direct tax."
"The income tax is, therefore, not a tax on income as such. It is an excise tax with respect to certain activities and privileges which is measured by reference to the income which they produce. "
"Since the adoption of the 16th Amendment, our income tax is NOT a special direct un-apportioned tax."
"The 16 Amendment did not classify our income tax as ‘neither’ a direct or indirect tax."
"The income is not the subject of the tax: it is the basis for determining the amount of tax."
" ‘From whatever source derived’, as it is written in the Sixteenth Amendment, does not mean 'from whatever source derived'."
"Credible evidence does NOT exist that our income tax is a direct tax."
